Join Roy Sivan for an in-depth discussion in this video Using plugin to show ACF data on template, part of Building a Single-Page Application with AngularJS and WordPress.
- Previously, I showed you how to get custom data…or even add custom data to the JSON REST API response.…A popular Plugin is Advanced Custom Fields.…It is a great Plugin for easily creating post Meta Boxes…for any custom Post Type or one of the existing Post Types.…I've created a couple here: Name, Title, Image.…I've assigned it just to "Post."…By default, the WP-API does not get this data.…You'd have to add it in.…However, there's an awesome Plugin, which already exists…called "ACF to WP-API."…I'm including it in the exercise files since it's located…only on GitHub right now.…
Once installed, you can activate it…and it will add the ACF data to your Post object.…So, we're going to go ahead and just go to "Post" here…and click on one of these.…I'm going to add in some data:…"Name: Roy Sivan. WordPress Developer",…and add an image.…Perfect. Update.…I want that to show up on the listing page,…so I'm going to hit refresh here,…but I will see nothing has shown up.…I'm going to open up Sublime and go to our "List" template.…
